Target Acquired: Splinter Zone

Eric Merz, under his Mokkograd label, presents Splinter Zone, an endless Mega Man-inspired action platformer. The game features 36 procedurally arranged levels and six boss encounters, with level themes including futuristic cities, conveyor belt-filled factories, underwater areas, and frozen ice-scapes. The player earns experience points by shooting enemies, and each new level increases his firepower with hovering orbs that follow closely behind... but the game is tough, and taking a hit causes the player to lose a level, and getting killed sends him back to the start of the game. For players wishing to even the odds a bit, a cheat menu loads up at the start of each game, allowing players to increase their damage output, decrease damage taken, and even remove the need to reload.

The game is now available for PC via Steam and Itch.io. Check our coverage here.
